The Potato Eaters

The film is based on the classical painting by Vincent van Gogh. The painter wanders through the landscape of his paintings a watches scenes from rural life. In the end he gets invited to a country house where he sees the potato eaters. The suggestive film honours van Gogh’s handwriting but shifts it to black and white.
